They are finally back.Taken with a K10D Pentax camera and a Vivitar 300mm f/5.6 TX mount lens with a Sigma APO DG EX 1.4 Teleconverter. Hand held shot at f/11 and f/8 in Aperture priority mode!

Fantastic shot of a beautiful little bird. I haven't seen one of these, either.

I'd like to be posting a closeup of a pilieated tonight, but alas, I didn't get the shot. I was sitting in the shade next to my woods. No birds had shown at the feeder, so I had set my camera down for a few minutes to read when not one, but a pair of pileateds landed on the side of a tree not ten feet from me. As I began to slowly bring up the camera, the labrador caught a glimpse of those "Big Birds," and leaped after it, growling and barking.....Pileateds last seen disappearing back deep into the woods. I heard them later in the woods and I'm hoping I'll get another shot at them soon if they've take up residence around here.

You'll be a lucky man to get a photo of them Paul. I have them around here but can't get close enough for even the Bigma to get a shot of one!
